    Thats not strange as in pakistan we do not have the models which contain a different brake system. In pakistani corollas this system in not present therefore there is no need to recall.

    A simple reason for that
    because Pakistan doesent make COROLLA
    pakistan makes ROLLA and ROlla is not product of Toyota its a Product of TOOTA

    so JApan called back TOYOTA corolla
    and pakistan we make TOOTA ROLLA so both are different cars

    confusion solved

    The company already made a statement that was in USDM speced cars and in Pakistan we get a different spec of cars. (altho is jst to keep our mouths shut and bear to live with wat we have.)
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Toyota doesn't operate directly in Pak unlike in the US. Indus Motors should take a call on the products they sell that are licenced by Toyota Motor if any issues occur.

    its considered the same around the globe. Corolla jessi be gari ho its one of the best selling cars around the globe not only in Pakistan. We are getting a inferior quality car, and a car which has no value for money thats all round a different topic.

    but not a BENCHMARK. there are loads of variants of Toyota abroad. atiq bhai once told me in Australia Corolla was considered to be a stupid car so not many. old is not always gold. else we wouldn't be cursing Mehrban or Bolan (much as i'd like to put a U instead of A). you must accept that we buy Civics and Corollas and feel as if we've purchased Mercs or BMs rather than realizing our cars are mid size family sedans, nothing LUXURY.

    Camry is Mid size, Corolla is compact
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.

    if they started recalling defective cars,.. no car would leave the production plants (any PDM)
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    I have a 2010 Gli and haven't really found a problem at this time but the recall has indeed had its affect on me and now i am not so sure about the sticky accelerator pedal...Here are the details of problems stated by Toyota itself.

    What is the problem that could cause accelerators to stick and led to the recall?
    The issue involves a friction device in the pedal designed to provide the proper “feel” by adding resistance and making the pedal steady and stable.

    This friction device includes a “shoe” that rubs against an adjoining surface during normal pedal operation. Due to the materials used, wear and environmental conditions, these surfaces may, over time, begin to stick and release instead of operating smoothly. In some cases, friction could increase to a point that the pedal is slow to return to the idle position or, in rare cases, the pedal sticks, leaving the throttle partially open.

    What is the solution Toyota announced to fix sticking accelerator pedals?
    Toyota’s engineers have developed and rigorously tested a solution that is both effective and simple. A precision-cut steel reinforcement bar will be installed into the accelerator pedal assembly, thereby eliminating the excess friction that has caused pedals to stick in rare instances.

    Reference Link: Newsroom : http://pressroom.toyota.com/pr/tms/c...ng-153495.aspx

    Other videos related to the matter are below:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eeQxB...os=_pyMo1UBQnU
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fObJh...os=YbJ1Qal5ECw


    So anyone who has any of of these or other associated problems please discuss them here.

    I highly doubt that our beloved president would ever let a recall happen here in Pakistan as long as he gets his part of the share....so its every man for himself. Please feel free to comment about these problems and share with us if anything that comes up. Your co-operation is highly appreciated.

    Keep your eyes and ears open and drive safe
